Custom Entity - date different per account RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a custom entity that contains different operativesystems that I can bind to different accounts (through a N:N relation)
    So I can attach windows 7 to all accounts(customers) that have Windows 7.

    But now I would like to extend this, to have a date-field belonging to the Windows 7.
    The easy was would ofcourse be to just have a date-field in the form for it,
    but that will give the same date on ALL accounts in their entity for Windows 7.

    I would like to be able to set a different date on each account.
    For example:
    Account 1
    - Custom Entity
         - Windows 7
             - Installed: 2013-01-12

    Account 2
    - Custom Entity
         - Windows 7
             - Installed: 2014-01-03

    How can I create this?

  • In order to qualify N:N relationships, you could use the connexion entity in Dynamics CRM 2011.

    The connection form displays a start date and an end date that you could use.

    Of course, using this new implementation implies data migration to convert your existing N:N relationships to connections. Hopefully, you can import Connection records using Excel import.
